It's kitten season! Shelter offers discounts

Orange County Animal Services celebrates Cinco de MEOW!

ORLANDO, Fla. - Kitten season is in full bloom at Orange County Animal Services as evidenced by the recent boom in their kitten population.

During the warm summer months the shelter sees huge spikes in cat populations, and this is when adopters are needed most.

On Saturday, May 5, Orange County Animal Services will reduce adoption fees to $5 for all cats and kittens in celebration of Cinco de Mayo—or as the Division calls it—Cinco de MEOW!

"This is the first time we've done a Cinco de Meow promotion," said Dil Luther, Division Manager of Orange County Animal Services. "And we're hoping for a great turnout from the community on Saturday."

Last year, Animal Services received nearly 23,000 animals at its shelter.

The promotion reduces cat adoption fees from the usual rate of $40 to just $5, making it more affordable than ever to bring home a loving feline. Limit two per household.

Each cat adoption includes spay/neuter, initial vaccinations, microchip identification, deworming, FLV/FIV test, rabies vaccination and an Adoption Welcome Kit.
